Mozart Symphony No. 40
Young Taiwanese-American violinist Paul Huang, winner of the 2017 Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists, takes center stage for Khachaturian’s Violin Concerto. Requiring tons of technical bravura and stamina, this concerto exudes Russian Romanticism with a touch of Gershwin and concludes with an infectiously finale. Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 is one of the composer's best-loved symphonies. Chabrier’s sparkling España is an evocation of Spain, and Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 3 is a thrilling conclusion to the program.
